As the internet starts to creep more into our lives and into our everyday objects like our television, there is now a growing change on how we interact with our household appliances. Previously, all we needed was a simple remote control for changing channels and adjusting the volume on our TV. Now, with smart TVs, we need keyboard and mouse to interact with our TVs. However, a full sized keyboard and mouse just wouldn’t fit it properly in a living room environment. What we need is a portable and handy controller like the iPazzPort Wireless Keyboard that functions as both a keyboard and a mouse.
iPazzPort has been producing mini portable keyboards for awhile now. These keyboards work with a wide variety of devices including devices running on Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Android plus the Xbox and PlayStation game consoles. For those of you who pair their TV with a home theater system running on any of these OSes, the iPazzPort Wireless Keyboard is a great alternative to a bulky full sized keyboard and mouse.
Admittedly, you won’t be typing as fast as on a normal keyboard but since it is unlikely that you will be composing your next great literary work on your TV, it is an acceptable compromise. The trackpad on the right side of the keyboard lets you control a mouse cursor. The trackpad supports multi-touch gestures such as two-finger scrolling. You can hold the keyboard horizontally or you can flip the controller 90 degrees and hold it single handedly like a normal TV remote. The trackpad changes orientation with just a touch of the orientation key.
The iPazzPort Wireless Keyboard connects wirelessly to your device using an included 2.4GHz radio frequency (RF) USB dongle. Just plug it into the USB port of your device and it should pair up automatically without the need for any drivers or set up. iPazzPort has also released a Bluetooth version of the keyboard that doesn’t require a USB dongle. The keyboard runs on 2 AAA batteries that are not included.
